A few reviews for this pro...


C. P. Toby H.

Excellent job all around. Even the tenants were visibly impressed with the quality of the work, the industriousness and friendliness of the workers, the neatness of the working spaces and the cleanliness of the yard when the project was completed. The foreman was on top of every little detail, he communicated daily, and he did not quit until everything was just right. The cost for this project seemed reasonable for the amount of work that had to be done. They are at the top of my list when the next outdoor project comes up.

I thought that most of my windows had broken seals and had to be replaced. Steven Parisi came to my home to give me a quote. It is with pride that I say he looked at my windows said the seals were not broken. I couldn't believe there was a company that would actually admit that I didn't need their service. He was wonderful, polite and gave me the name of a company that could fix the one window that had a little break in the glass. I will certainly use this company if I ever need the services they provide. Thanks Steve!

Posted a description of the job on line. They replied and I again described what I wanted. They advised me to call and set an appointment for someone to come out. They said they are currently scheduling 3 weeks out. When I called. they asked me to describe the job again. It too small, they advised me to call mr. handy man. Why couldn't they say this in the initial message.

Mr. [Member Name Removed], as a follow up to my calls and emails, again, we take your comments very seriously. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations on your recent experience with Carolina Exteriors. Our reputation across Angie’s List and all other platforms is exemplary and as a small business owner, I, along with our team, work tirelessly on a daily basis to provide great experiences to our customers. I’ve reviewed the transcripts of the chats / messages with our office, as well as, listened to the recording of your phone call with our office team and if we failed you in anyway, again, I apologize. Our team is trained to engage with customers in a timely manner and we ask for additional follow up information on the call to ensure the projects described are exactly what a customer is wanting to have quoted. We ask these questions in order to determine if we are a good fit for a particular project and mostly to ensure, if we are not, we don’t waste the customer's time; and if possible, provide possible referrals of other service providers that might be of better service. It seems as though you felt like we led you on by asking for additional information and again, my apologies. I wish you the best of luck for a successful contracting experience with another service provider. Thanks, Clifton Muckenfuss Co-Found/Owner


Erika J.

Excellent communication which is a huge bonus and not always the case in renovation projects. Love the website and DAILY logs/emails which include pictures. Project Mgr was on site every day and was very easy to get in touch with quickly. Siding crew deserves an A+! Overall paint crew ended up doing a good job, just needed some touch ups--which they did without question. Impressive considering heat and amount of work that had to be done. Would hire again and again!

Janet S.

After 20+ years of the southern exposure in our home, six wood framed windows needed replacement. We contracted with Carolina Exteriors to replace these windows with new PlyGem vinyl windows. From the first visit to provide us an estimate for the work through the delivery and the installation of the new windows, we were very happy with the prompt and professional work of each of the Carolina Exteriors' staff. And also we appreciated the clear communications from all throughout the process. Thanks!

Resided whole house with aged pewter and white trim. Looks Great. Some of the neighbors are envious which was one of the goals. Very impressed with the workmanship. Front railing is super sturdy. It was a lot of work but crew was great and exceeded expectations. Carolina Exteriors handled all the accessory work such as gutters, windows and chimney cap without me having to do anything.

Deck construction went well, with some patience on our part. The company was busy, and we were out of town for 3 weeks, but in time it got done. . The work was very professional and well supervised.

On behalf of everyone at Carolina Exteriors, a big Thank You for choosing us! We sincerely appreciate your feedback and the positive review.


Brian E.

Our project included siding/wood repairs, exterior painting, adding two sections of gutter and replacing a few windows. When the project started, we were really impressed with the professionalism and cleanliness of the crew, and especially the daily updates and photos in the client portal to let us know what had been completed and next steps. Our project manager Lewis responded quickly to any questions. Thanks Clifton, Lewis and team for a job well done. Highly recommend.

Very well....CE PLUS did exceptional work, and each of the teams (roofing, siding, deck) was very efficient and considerate of our household during the entire project which required nearly 3 weeks. The crews were very hard working and absolutely professional and skilled. The Job supervisors were very responsive to any concerns or questions we had and communicated daily both in person and by email, providing us with a daily progress report that included photos.
